AL Yukikaze — Japanese promo premium Tier VIII destroyer.

Famously known as the "Fortune Ship" for her achievements in the Great War. She's arrogant and believes that all her success is due to her ability. Gets upset when ignored and left alone. There is a rivalry between her and Shigure, although neither is sure why this is the case. From the game Azur Lane.

AL Yukikaze was first released for sale worldwide on 1 May 2019.

Player Opinion

Performance

Tier VIII Premium Japanese destroyer AL Yukikaze is a clone of Tier VIII tech tree destroyer Kagero with two major changes: she is locked into equipping the Type F3 torpedoes — rather than offering captains a choice between the Type 90 mod. 1's or Type 93 mod. 2's as Kagero does — and she is not allowed to equip the Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.) consumable. Fans of Kagero will find that AL Yukikaze offers them a slightly different, high-risk, high-reward playstyle.

In all other aspects, AL Yukikaze is identical to Kagero: speed, handling, detection... even down to her mediocre main battery and nearly complete lack of an AA suite. The Japanese destroyer line becomes challenging to excel in at high tiers, but like Kagero, AL Yukikaze provides all the tools necessary for captains to do just that; they need only bring patience and a willingness to learn how to handle her.

Pros:

  • Lowest detection range of all Tier VIII destroyers.
  • Fast, powerful torpedoes that hit like freight trains.
  • Good handling; same turning circle as her predecessors, quick rudder shift.

Cons:

  • Mediocre top speed of 35 knots.
  • Main battery is slightly improved from Akatsuki, but is still nothing special.
  • Painfully long torpedo reload time.
  • Does not have access to Torpedo Reload Booster (When used, torpedo reload time is significantly reduced.).

Research

As a premium ship, AL Yukikaze doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for AL Yukikaze are as follows:

Commander Skills

Consumables

AL Yukikaze can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

As a premium ship, AL Yukikaze comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

AL Yukikaze captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to increase the ship's top speed. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
